This place is the real deal. We started off with a super friendly server named Carol. It was our anniversary and Carol made that much more enjoyable. From service to food to atmosphere on every level top notch. Will definitely be back.

This was our first night dinner for girls trip...service was great, food was perfect for everyone, atmosphere was good...Menu was not exciting for the coast but they were willing to make some substitutions...no complaints at all but it is a splurge evening!

My family took me to Halyards for a wonderful meal last night. The service was great and we all enjoyed various items from their menu. There were lots of people in the restaurant, but an enjoyable evening. They have a good wine list also!!

My husband and I came here last night and dinner was exceptional. We loved being able to reserve a seat for 2 through the OpenTable app. It was a welcomed break from having to wait to be seated like most other restaurants on the island...More

Made a last minute reservation on a Friday night and was accommodated right away. "Hitman" was our waiter and he was very patient and courteous. We were in the "alcove" by the bar and felt very well treated even though located in a busy area...More

We are celebrating our 35th Wedding anniversary. We wanted this dinner to be very special--and it was!! Fully recommend the filet Mignon and escargot. Very, very nice. That, coupled with great service, made for a very special evening--one to be remembered for years to come.

Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 11 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who've heard that the Seared Tuna with a Plum Wine Reduction and the Prime N.Y. Strip with Soy Lime Butter will make your evening. That's not to say you should skip the Creamy Blue Crab Bisque or the nightly specials. The atmosphere is casually elegant (coozy lounge furniture in the courtyard and under the awning), the welcome warm (usually by name), the service crisp and attentive, the wine cellar vast (7 Wine Spectator Awards) and the comfortable bar hip and hopping. The menu is the brilliant handiwork of Chef/Owner Dave Snyder that changes nightly and is bold, creative and gloriously rewarding. To be sure you're pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he's not out fishing for your dinner. As you would expect at a restaurant of Halyards' caliber, reservations are a good idea.
